My vacation was supposed to start yesterday...but my washer stopped working late Friday night with an entire load of clothes and fabric stranded in soapy, grey water. A repair guy was supposed to come...between noon and 3 p.m. on Saturday. So no way i could leave at 3 p.m. In fact, they didn't come 'til 5, stayed 'til 7...and it turns out there was nothing wrong with the machine, there's a problem with a valve in the plumbing that drains the washer into the sewer line. That meant i had to go to the laundromat this a.m. with my sopping wet, rather funky smelling clothes and fabric. I'm finally going...now...later than ever...and need to drive 300 miles before my stop for the night!
The cats won't have access to the computer until i get back online (in 8 days) so they wish all their friends to stay happy and healthy in their absence. I'm so late leaving, the lovely cat sitter has been here already and fed them, so they are dozing contentedly.
Oh, i'm going to a friend's B&B in Newport, RI, and then on to the Vermont Quilt Festival. I promise pictures when i get back! Stay well, all!
